The Alberta Student Leadership Summit (ASLS) took place on January 25, 2020 and is open to post-secondary and high school students from across the province. The summit strives to be an accessible leadership development opportunity that builds skills, grows community, and inspires action.
Please check back in August 2020 for more information.
ASLS: Planned by students, for students.
We believe that students are the best people to decide what students want to see in a student leadership conference; that's why we have a team of students who direct the conference. The directors take on roles from setting the schedule to coordinating volunteers.
Frequently Asked Questions

These positions help the Summit to run smoothly during the day and ensure that our attendees are comfortable. Most years, our Day-Of Volunteers are also able to watch at least one of the presentations, so you will also be able to get some professional development. The applications
